If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him.Romans 6:8
(1) Plan a Funeral Vigil
“At the vigil, the Christian community keeps watch with the family in prayer to the God of mercy and finds strength in Christ’s presence.”-Order of Christian Funerals, no. 56
(2) Plan a Funeral Liturgical Mass
A Mass is the preferred form of liturgical celebration and will include the Eucharistic celebration.
(3) Plan a Funeral Liturgical Service
When Mass cannot be celebrated, a funeral liturgy outside of mass (without the Eucharistic element) can be celebrated.
(4) Plan a Funeral Reception
A reception with food and drinks can be provided in o’Reilly Hall beneath the church.
